30 in30 (Projects/Days) #5: 30 in 30 Midway Point

06-14-2009 05:10 PM by Russel | 11 comments »

Well, it’s half way through the 30 Projects in 30 Days Challenge and it’s time for a bit of a review. Or, What I Learn on My Summer Vacation. In two weeks, I have learned that if I need to, I can discipline myself to complete projects on a deadline. I have been known to start things and set them off to the side, but this challenge has put me into a position to complete what I start. That’s a good thing. Coming up with a regular stream of projects is no small feat. ...

Step-back Cupboard Build #7: Shelves and cleats

06-14-2009 03:29 PM by rwyoung | 0 comments »

The blanks for the upper and lower “floating” shelves will have a simple bull-nose profile routed on them. This is the same profile shown in Mike Dunbar’s article and I like the look. But I had to go pick up a bull-nose bit (Freud, purchased at local Woodcraft). I got a 3/16” radius version. Should work out just fine. This is not a bearing guided bit so the router table fence must be set up correctly. My first try, I had forgotten to tighten the bolts that ...

First cabinets #4: On the home stretch

06-14-2009 12:31 PM by Mark Gipson | 4 comments »

Almost there with the kitchen cabinets. Today I was able to install them, fit the top and appliances and start using them. There are only 2 things left to complete this project, build and install the kick plate and the cabinet door. The door may have to wait a little while as I don’t have a drill press yet. I don’t fancy trying to drill the 35mm hole for the hinges with a hand drill. I am looking at the limited choice of drill presses here at the moment, so far a Performax 12̶...

Amazing Deck rail that doubles as an amazing seat

06-14-2009 09:31 AM by motthunter | 17 comments »

I have been traveling for a few weeks now for work and saw the perfect solution for deck seating on a house on a river near Bangkok. When I get to my deck project, I plan to replicate it for me. I just wanted to share it with everyone. It is beautiful.

Step-back Cupboard Build #6: Dados, dryfit and glue-up!

06-14-2009 07:03 AM by rwyoung | 1 comment »

Good progress today. Got the case assembled. Before I assembled the case I had a little more work to do on the middle shelf. I wanted a table top edge on it. I’ve got a 7/8” table thumbnail edge bit that I like. Not an expensive bit, less than $20 I think from Super Carbide Tools This bit is about 2-1/2” tip to tip so the router needs to be slowed down. Consult the manual for your router if it is a variable speed. Or the manual for the external speed controller...

Electrolysis for Rust Removal and Plane Rehab Series #1: Stanley Block Plane

06-14-2009 06:27 AM by Sandking | 4 comments »

Well I was going to paint my medicine cabinet (see other blog) but it started raining. Instead I decided to try my hand at electrolysis (thanks to David here on Lumberjocks). I went up to the attic where I had some old planes I’ve collected that I would one day rehab. When I first started this hobby a few years ago I purchased some hand planes that were already rehabed to start with and then just picked rusted ones up as I found them. I thought I’d try my hand at taking somet...

Traditional Chinese Woodworking #1: Liu Shifu

06-14-2009 05:47 AM by chscholz | 11 comments »

Forgive me, I don’t hang out here all that often. I finally had the opportunity to visit a master woodworker who still uses traditional methods and tools. So I thought I share a few snapshots with y’all. In fact traditional Chinese woodworking has been quite illusive. A few times a almost had the opportunity to visit a traditional shop it turned out that the woodworker retired and gave all his tools away. Finally, three weeks ago and with the help of good friends we were able t...
